How much will my water bill increase if the City builds a Water Treatment Facility?

The increase depends directly on the amount of water used by the customer. If a commercial account uses a lot of water, its cost will be higher than that of an individual who uses a smaller quantity. Estimates indicate a Water Treatment Plant would add an average of $1 a day to a typical residential municipal water account. The rate increase would be used to pay back a 30-year loan used to build the facility, as well as ongoing maintenance and operation costs.
